I just placed an order for another Hockshield to have as a spare. My TB gelding developed a hock sore from rolling outside on frozen ground and then kept opening it up when he would lie down in his stall at night. He is well bedded on pellet bedding and his stall is always very clean. I tried everything I knew to heal the sore and nothing was working. I gave up and did an Internet search and found your product. It works just as you say. I had only one episode of it slipping down on the second night he wore it and it has stayed in place every night since. The sore is healed over now with just a small callous/scar showing and I could not be happier! I am sure Miles of Smiles (Smilie) is happier, too with a pain free hock.
